Machine Connections can be handled in a number of ways:
1) If your embroidery machine comes with machine connection software, such as, Ricoma PC
communication software (EMB_soft.exe) for Ricoma embroidery machine, or "HappyLink" software for Happy embroidery machine, etc., then "Connection Manager" is what you need. Please find out more information by clicking here.
2) If your embroidery machine comes with a serial port but no machine connection software, please read the information below:
Your machine must be set up through Stitch Manager if you are sending to Stitch Manager, or Machine Manager if sending to Machine Manager.
The following information provides details pertaining to the protocols and settings required for EmbroideryStudio/DecoStudio to connect to embroidery machines.
Select your machine type:
Tajima | Barudan | Toyota | Melco | Brother | Happy | Cable Types
Barudan connectors do vary, so it is important to physically check the connector on the machine before ordering a Barudan Connect cable or DCi.
Check which connector type fits your machine's parallel port.
